Smother your skin with vitamin C!
Like many people, you may be wondering what you can do to make sure that your body is healthy in all aspects. We may do all that’s needed for our weight and fitness goals, but what about the layer that protects us? How can we take care of our skin so that it stays young and healthy?
Aside from eating healthy and sleeping well, there are some specific nutrients that can help give our skin the health and strength that it needs.
One of these nutrients is Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid. Years ago, people who had deficient Vitamin C in their diet suffered from ulcers and bleeding under the skin. Why? Vitamin C is the most crucial ingredient in the production of collagen, which helps cells grow and gives our skin its firmness. Keeping a steady supply of collagen in the body allows it to keep wrinkles from forming. More importantly, this vitamin is what allows our skin to heal properly and in a timely manner.
Interestingly, Vitamin C has also been found to act as an antioxidant. That’s great news for your skin! Antioxidants fight free radicals, which means staving off aging.
Without this nutrient, the health and appearance of our skin suffer. Unfortunately, some of us do not keep tabs on our vitamin intake, and lose out on what’s needed for our skin health. Because of this, various products have been created to make it easier for people like you to take care of their well-being and keep that healthy glow.
Topical serums, such as Obagi, provide your skin with Vitamin C and protect it from sun damage. They also give you all other benefits of Vitamin C once they are absorbed, such as healing, smoothness, and boosting the effect of other skin treatments. Obagi creams ensure that your skin stays healthy and young in a very non-invasive manner. Best of all, it’s easy to remember and can become a part of your daily healthy-living routine!
It’s important to give your skin the attention it deserves. Maintaining your health and well-being does not have to stop at weight and diet. Taking care of your skin will help you look and feel better, and can potentially protect you from skin disease. For more information on how to take care of your skin, talk to our consultants today!
